NOTE: For one of the summer meetings, the PAC traditionally braves the heat and takes to the street for an annual PAC Walking Tour, instead of a regular meeting.

In June 2013, Commissioner Steve Novick, endorsed the recommendations from the PAC for new PAC Member appointments. Nine (9) Newly Appointed PAC Members:
In addition, the PAC recommended selecting additional applicants as “Alternate members.” Appointing Alternate PAC members required an amendment to the PAC Bylaws to create Alternate positions. Per the PAC Bylaws, the soonest the PAC could vote on an amendment to the Bylaws was at the June meeting. The Bylaws were amended, as noted above. The Alternate members recommendations are for endorsement and appointment consideration by Commissioner Novick.
At the June 18, 2013 PAC meeting, the PAC moved to adopt amendments to the PAC Bylaw ARTICLE II. MEMBERSHIP, to create up to 8 “Alternate” Member positions on the PAC, as well as a few minor clean up and grammar edits. The Bylaw amendments will be placed on the June 18 PAC meeting agenda for deliberation and a vote by the PAC. This amendment was discussed at the May 21 PAC meeting. The amendment was recommended by the 2013 PAC Membership Sub-committee. The Bicycle Advisory Committee (BAC) currently has Alternate positions written into their Bylaws. The amendments to the PAC Bylaws are fashioned after relevant sections of the BAC Bylaws.
